Our Beliefs – ABCs Basis for Action

Access to quality childcare is essential to the economic vitality of the New River Valley.  We need to attract and retain talented people with young children.  Quality childcare and education is essential for all members of the NRV community, and our region will benefit from better childcare, today and tomorrow. 

  • The lack of childcare calls for diverse solutions, including

                        More childcare providers

                        More and better home care, co-ops and other creative choices

                        More short-term, flexible and specialized care options

  • Families, educators and providers need an information and communications hub, providing databases, referrals, training and education opportunities, and sharing best practices to enhance our connections and leverage our resources

  • The workforce is the foundation of all childcare, and issues of low pay, undersupply, training and opportunities need to be tackled

  • We will develop local solutions through fostering engagement and building partnerships

  • Quality childcare and education is essential for the well-being of children, families, our communities, and economic vitality
